For Teens

How does TPN work with teens?

Our crisis and support hotline is available 24/7 with someone there to listen, guide and support you.

Anyone can call anonymously and talk to someone if they need to.


If you call 1-800-639-3130 while the office is open, a member of TPN staff will answer from our office. If you call at any other time, an answering service will ask for your first name and phone number. A volunteer will then call you back within five minutes.

You are not required to give your name or age, but you certainly may. Keep in mind, TPN staff members are mandated reporters of abuse that happens to a minor.

You can call to talk about a situation you are dealing with, or something happening to a friend. You can also ask about “What If” scenarios without attaching any names if you don’t want to. For example, someone could call and ask, “What if a 14 year old was dating someone treating them badly and they wanted to leave, they’re afraid of seeing their ex at school?”

1 in 3 U.S. Teens are Victims of Physical, Sexual, Emotional, or Verbal Abuse from a Dating Partner

Any young person can experience dating abuse regardless of gender, sexual orientation, ethnicity, religion, or culture.

Dating abuse is a pattern of destructive behaviors used to exert power and control over a dating partner. Anyone can call TPN anonymously and talk to someone if they need to.
